150 pilots carrying ’bogus or suspicious licences’, says PIA

150 pilots carrying ’bogus or suspicious licences’, says PIA

Pakistan International Airlines has grounded almost a third of its pilots for holding fake or dubious licences. The action comes in the wake of a plane crash last month which killed 98 people. Investigators largely blamed the two pilots, who ignored flight protocols and had been discussing COVID-19. 150 of its 434 pilots were carrying ’either bogus or suspicious licences’.

Nearly half of it's pilots had no official license. Wow. Who made money off that racket?

Your life is at risk if you use any other airline than one from the developed world. That includes Russia and China. You are possibly at risk if you use an airline from a non native English speaking country. Pilot error is the most common cause of airplane crashes. Choices.

That takes some courage and bravery to fly a plane without any training
